What it means In the line: HDMI1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 890mm x 500mm indeed, the last section: 890mm x 500mm gives you the size of your screen x/y in mm Why the difference? In this question, we ran into the same issue. The explanation is that by default, the screen is "assumed" to be at 96dpi, which ...

I had the same problem and was finding nomodeset annoying not just because of the screen resolution, but because it really made compiz suck cpu. So I went back to not using nomodeset because I'd found that if I waited 5 minutes after booting, the screen would come on. Anyway, just now when I booted, it went black after the grub screen as usual, but the ...

If your auto started .desktop file is a script you simply can put a control echo into the script like following example: # if yyou want only data saved for one run echo "Script has run on $(date)" > ~/script.log # if you want a continous log output append if [ -e ~/script-log ] then echo "Script has run on $(date)" >> ~/script.log ...

I have multiple monitors configured. In Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus), using Displays (unity-control-center), only Resolutions 1024x768 and 800x600 were available in the pulldown menu for my second display which is DVI output (DVI-0 Radeon driver). So I configured a modified version of the lightdmxrandr.sh based on the solution described above. My verion of ...

I have 4 laptops upgraded with 16.04, and they all behave a little different with what GRUB accepts. The preferred way should be to set in /etc/default/grub GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1080x32 with the part after the equal sign the allowed resolutions for your device. Use either c at the GRUB prompt and enter vbeinfo, or run sudo hwinfo --framebuffer from the ...

As first you need to download the VirtualBox 5.0.17 Guest Additions installer image from here. (P.S.: make sure you download one for Linux 32-bit or 64-bit depending on the system you installed on your VM) After that add this image into your VM's DVD and start your VM. When booted up and logged in you might need to mount the cd image (in case you use a ...

Roey, I had the same problem when I purchased my new AMD 64 bit HP. I have run Ubuntu for almost 10 years. The problem comes with "wide screen resolution". If you had an older computer like I did, a laptop with a screen resolution of 4:3 and you were running nothing higher that Ubuntu V12.xx, no problem. But when I tried to upgrade to v14.04 i had the ...

I just solved the problem accidentally... For future generations, here is the solution: After installing the bumblebee pack as explained here I rebooted ubuntu and forgot to boot it with "nomodeset". Somehow, now it works without it and everything is good ;)

I have had the same issue with one of my monitors. It would not pull the EDID from the monitor at all. I had to manually add the refresh and sync info to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. One way that I know of to get the HorizSync and VertRefresh for your monitor (HDTV) is to run the nvidia-xconfig. Don't run the application with your existing xorg.conf ...

You have several choices but perhaps the easiest is to place your command exactly as you have given above in your $HOME/.xprofile file. From here it will be executed every time you login. By default this file does not exist in Ubuntu and so may need to be created manually and then be made executable. The following commands will do this: touch ...

Do not use Ubuntu 14.04. There's a whole boatload of issues with this laptop on 14.04. You'll need to use 15.10, or wait until 16.04. (or use the beta of 16.04) I can confirm the wireless driver works with 15.10. I was able to get suspend and resume "mostly" working by following these steps. Although it still tends to freeze. If I do not install the ...

I installed kubuntu 16.04, but i guess the problems are the same. Install with a live usb or something but before you start edit the grub, to add the nomodeset (before or after the quite option) option and then hit F10 ( search dell 7559 and nomodeset for more info). This will let you install (k)ubuntu from the live usb. after you installed and rebooted you ...
